The Critters Awww Scale





Critters -- or creatures -- are marvelous things, enriching our lives in so many ways just by being around and being themselves.  Cute fluffy kittens, gangling turkey poults, a bandit raccoon, a lumbering box turtle -- they can all be a source of delight.

But there's something about those moments of communication between different species that tends to make us go 'Awww...' and smile and maybe feel a little better about life in general. 
 
I know I feel that way when I see Eddie the cat snuggling with one of our dogs ... and this picture from an unknown source of a young deer that comes every morning to visit his friend the cat sure elicited a big Awww . . .
 But as far as I'm concerned, this video below -- another of those internet wanderers -- went right off the Awww scale.  Awesome!

I'm sorry that those of you on dial up can't watch the video of the young woman and an elephant seal making friends somewhere (I think) in Antarctica. Totally amazing, as Pat said.

It's not 'my' deer picture (I wish it were) -- it's from someone in Mississippi.

Awwwwwwwwwwww! I'm still on dial up, so I couldn't watch the video, but I don't think anything could elicit a bigger 'awwwwwwwwwwww' from me than that picture of the deer kissing the cat!

AWWWWW, mummy.

That is so sweet and absolutely darling. I could watch it over and over again. What a wonderful experience. Animals for once not being afraid of humans.
